I've ordered a pattern for a cardigan for my baby niece because it looked really lovely and I wanted to have a go. I haven't received the pattern yet, but in case it doesn't have very good instructions can anyone tell me what the basics of Ridge Stitch are and if it's difficult? I'm not a beginner knitter, but I wouldn't class myself as expert either and I'm sure it's the first time I've heard of Ridge Stitch.
If you get stuck on this one I will try to dig out a book I have on knitting 'pattern' stitches.
Long time since I followed a pattern, from memory I think it may simply be made up of stocking stitch and garter stitch. Not sure what they are called in other countries (I am from the UK)- I mean a pattern that is made of just knit and purl rows.
I'm from the UK as well and I thought I was familiar with most of the North American terms for the different stitches and patterns, but this is one I can't recall at all.
Many thanks for your offer of help will take you up on that if I need the help.

That's a very nice video. Clear, easy to understand, nice close-up. And the stitch looks really simple to do.
Many thanks for the link will certainly have a look at this.
The video looks really good,it is nice to be able to pause and replay the stitch method until you can see how it is worked.Great idea.
